I knew what rhassoul clay was, because a few women recommended I use it. Honestly, nothing was going to come between me and my bentonite clay. However, there I was last night minding my business, when Naptual85 puts on her facebook status that she's in love with the Anita Grant's Rhassoual Clay Deep Conditioner. I just had to click the link, because I wasn't aware that rhassoul clay could be used as a deep conditioner. Immediately, I had a vision of me using bentonite clay to clean, and then some rhassoul clay to deep condition. Yes I know I would have to mix it, and I know I wrote that long thing about not mixing anymore. Still, if you've been reading this blog long you know about my insane ways.


After clicking the link and reading the review, I was all hyped and ready to purchase Anita Grants deep conditioner. However, the price made me take a minute to regroup. I have no money, and can't afford to spent $9+ on something I'd finish in one use. Off to the devils tv (YouTube) I went, and just like I hoped, I found that some of the ladies have been making their own version of Mrs. Anitas clay. I fell in love with one recipe, but I still have half gallon of Jessicurl's Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatment. At the time when I bought the gallon, I didn't think there could be anything better. This deep conditioner hasn't failed me so far, but for some reason my mind is telling me the grass may be greener in Rhassoul heaven. Tammy over at the Curly Chic just wrote a blog about us women always thinking another product is better. At the time when I read it, silly I didn't know I was one of them! Lol

Again, I am not about to waste the $100+ gallon bottle (half is left). So I won't be able to try a rhassoul clay deep conditioner until sometime next year. Until then I will research the perfect recipe and measurements.

Here are the ingredients for Anita Grants Rhassoul Deep Conditioner
Ingredients: Rhassoul Clay powder (Hectorite/Moroccan Lava Clay), Organic Unrefined Cocoa Butter (Theobroma Cacao), Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Olea Europea), 100% Organic Green & Blacks Pure Cocoa Powder (Theobroma Cacao), Organic Unrefined Murumuru Butter (Astrocaryum Murumuru), MSM (Methyl sulfonyl methane), Organic Chilean Honey (Miel), 1000iu of Natural Soya Derived Vitamin E and LOVE!

I'd love to find some way to add Shea Butter, Marshmallow Root, Aloe Vera Powder, Burdock Root, Nettle & Kelp to my final mixture. Those are some ingredients in my gallon that I have come to love. Most if not all the ingredients, can be bought from MountainRoseHerb.com. Now I just have to find good measurements. After reading Anita's website, it seems the key to her products is she doesn't add water when making them. The customer is instructed to add water, at the time of use.

Do any of you ladies already use Rhassoul clay? Do you have a recipe you don't mind sharing?


Update: Here is the only recipe I've found so far. I still want to add my own ingredients,but this looks like a good place to start.
